CheckGemba is an easy-to-use checklisting App, designed for gemba walkers, auditors, and inspectors who want to go see shopfloors and facilities working paperless. With a list made beforehand, or during their tour, they will enjoy the opportunity for structured verification and timesaving reporting of the walkthrough findings as a result of the export function to a computer.
The App enables you to create and use your own list or a generic list of items you want to check out at your gemba, during an inspection round or an audit. Checklists can be created in the App, or on a computer and imported in CheckGemba. CheckGemba offers you the handy feature to qualify your responses in 9 different categories (see features).
Once created, you can share your checklist with others, e.g. to go see different locations with exactly the same checklist. The progress in the verification of the checklist items is made clear by transferring every item from the list of uncompleted items to a list of completed items after it has been answered. So, no more unintentionally missed observation points! Titles can be added to the checklist and the possibility to jump from title to title makes the use of long checklists manageable. During your gemba visit or site tour you can add additional information and media files to your checklist. After finishing the checklist, you can export the items, your responses to them, and your notes. If wanted, you can log the checklist’s handling, and export the items in their sequence of answering. Checklists that are used regularly can be saved in the App as templates and make assessments consistent in time and place.
